John is pretty good. It would be cool to hear Furthur focus more on the improvisational jams with a guitarist like Kimock or Scofield, for example. At the same time, if this is what Bobby and Phil want to do, then who am I to demand them to do anything else?

This new Sweetwater is a different venue/location than the old one where Jerry used to play all the time. This new building was purchased from the Mason Lodge. Bobby's the main investor in the revived Sweetwater brand.

I mentioned this in a recent "Furthur" thread . Though I like the band, your "Kimock or Scofield" comment echoes some of my feelings, of what I might like to see . I like a lot of the ideas/setlists thy come up with, but I end up somehow "liking" them, and not "loving" them .

Seems to be a common sentiment. I've seen Furthur about a half dozen times and at this point I'm kind of burnt out on that band. I've seen them play all the Grateful Dead tunes that I wanted to hear and I've been impressed. I just don't feel a strong need to go see them again at this point.

That said, I'll probably check out a summertime Bay Area show just for shits and giggles.

I would be much more interested in seeing this band if I knew they would be covering unexplored improvisational territory. Seems like they are really focused on the songs instead of the massive jams at this point.

I'd also like to see Ratdog back together. I was lucky enough to be present at the reunion last January and it was a lot of fun.
